    It would be a huge boost to keep him, even until the next transfer window, but it is not going to happen. We need the money and he wants to play at a higher level. He was a class above last night. If the Pozzo a could fund the retention of all three of our attackers last night, it would be very difficult not to see us get promotion. Give Dennis an improved contract with a buy out clause for £20m (not operative until July 2023) and ask him to go out show his worth for the rest of the season. Need a consortium of investors to come in for a share of the project. Over to you Elton.

    Poor bloke. Missed most of last year and now this, when he should be coming into his prime.

    They need to pay up or shut up.

    Everton will be desperate so if they come calling I suggest that figure is where we start. I think a lot will depend on Dennis or where he wants to see his future

    It's certainly work in our favour if it's them and they have limited options late in the window.

    Ironic if so as we'd be getting the Richarlison money they just made to buy his replacement from us.

    The idea that we will get £50m for Dennis is absurd!

  11. Exactly ! We owe them no favours. £60m or we keep him.

    Genuine question but are Everton still affected by FFP? They couldn’t spend a penny last season until they they sold Digne. Obviously they sold big nose but also spent £20m on McNeil, long story short we probably aren’t getting an over the odds amount from Everton because their past behaviour had caught up with them.

    Just a starting figure. Under no illusion we would get that but I reckon they will be desperate which pushes the price up. Start high and go from there

    I was joking... I think.

    Unless Barcelona or PSG come in for him.

    Or Palace.
     
  15. Start at £50m and go up from there.

    I would imagine the discussions that will have been held with his agent have already established an effective 'minimum sell price' of £20 million. Those discussions would have been at the start of pre-season when the club would have envisaged more interest in Sarr and I cannot imagine Dennis' advisers being willing to 'golden handcuff' him with a higher price than that, especially not in the context of what we bought him for.
    Not to say Dennis would necessarily agree to go to any club offering that much, but if it's one he likes the look of, I think we'd be fooling ourselves to think we'd get more.

    I now await Everton coming in with a desperate £25 mill offer....

    I’m hearing that Dennis’ move to Bournemouth has hit a stumbling block at the eleventh hour. It seems Gino made an additional demand that the loan fee (believed to be around £150k) be paid to an unknown third party, not Watford FC. He wants to ensure the club do not benefit at all from the arrangement. Bournemouth were not keen on doing business with an unknown third party but acquiesced in order to get the deal over the line.

    HOWEVER, a further complication arose around Dennis’ earlier demand that all red squirrels on nearby Brownsea Island are exterminated before his arrival (he has a morbid fear of them). It seems Dorset County Council agreed to the demand as Dennis is considered a bigger benefit to the local economy than these tiny red nut munchers. But the UK Government intervened and blocked the extermination.

    Deal looks now to be dead in the water (unlike the squirrels).

    Get as much as we can. Everton are renowned for paying ridiculous fees. No harm in asking for £30 million imo.

    Lucky they've got that Richard Hughes to spot these dodgy characters

    You get more insight when you are ITK obviously. Red squirrels are over 5ft tall in Nigeria so I can see why Dennis might have a fear of them.

    I don't really like the character of that weathered scrotum either.

    West Ham have already signed Scamacca and added Cornet to their neverending stable of jinking but fairly direct wide attackers/forwards/wingers - character or not, will they seriously be in the hunt for another one to add to the mix?

    Bowen
    Antonio
    Scamacca
    Cornet
    Lanzini
    Fornals
    Benrahma
    Dawson

    ET doesn't mind a cat kicker, but has a problem with someone that hasn't caused any issues since being in the UK (that are widely reported anyway)?

    Lol.

    Oh well, better for us if he stays put! Just need to get Sarr out the door!

    Anybody still think we will get anything near what Gino is asking for him after last nights performance?

    Personally I would be happy to get £10 million for him just as long as he is out of the club.

    But he’s arguably our best player? He’ll get well into double figures this season if we keep him. £10m won’t win us promotion.
